A 1984 graduate of Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Pratt has additional training in small animal dentistry, with interests in preventive medicine, and general surgery. His most recent continuing education courses include heart failure, nutrition, pain management, small intestinal surgery, and infectious bronchitis. Previous degrees include AA Spanish, BS Animal Science, and BS Veterinary Science.
Raised surrounded by farm animals on the Mexican border, Dr. Pratt worked in a mixed practice treating anything non-human his first two years in practice. He soon discovered his love for pet practice and ultimately gave up the farm animals when he moved to Utah in 1988. After joining the Central Valley Veterinary Group he restricted his practice primarily to dogs and cats for greater focus.
Active in his community, he has been honored to serve as a Salt Lake District representative on the Utah Veterinary Medical Association board for 8 years then to represent Utah in the American Veterinary Medical Association House of Delegates for two years. He also belongs to the American Animal Hospital Association. Outside of work he enjoys skiing, mountain biking, dabbling in his garden, and traveling with his wife to visit the grandkids.
